To be honest, this is my first SSD ever. I have wanted one since their release, but they have always been out of my sensible price range. As of right now, they still are. The smaller drives, like the F40 seem like a teaser to me. They are right in a...

The performance of the Corsair Force 120GB SSD was excellent. It overtook most of the SSDs we have reviewed in the Test Center, offering a good balance of price, performance and capacity. Don't leave a performance/gaming PC wanting for an SSD now....

The Force series drives from Corsair are comparable to most other SF1200 controller SSDs on the market. They do perform slightly lower in read and write sustained speeds than the “standard” 285/275. The units tested are the smallest drives...

The Corsair Force 40GB SSD may be the baby in the Force Series family but that doesn't stop it from putting up numbers to rival that of its older siblings in most of our tests. If you are considering entering the world of SSDs but don't want to...

Corsair's Force F40 drive sits at the lower spectrum of the SSD capacity carousel. With just 40 GB, the drives most probable use will be as a fast operating system boot drive with a couple of applications on it. With recent games taking up up to 10...

For whatever reason, the budget conscious market has always been the “bargain bin” of the solid state industry. It is usually where last generation products go to die or where companies try to make a quick buck with low-quality drives that end...

If you've got £175 to spend, it's hard to ignore the impressive performance of Corsair's F80 drive. But that's a big if, as the majority of consumers are likely to be put off by a cost of over £2 per gigabyte. And, if...

This review has revealed that without a doubt the SSD completely destroys the standard SATA-II HDD. The blistering performance to be had from an SSD is more than significant. The Corsair Force series should convince you that moving to SSD can benefit...

When I received this drive I expected it to be much like the F100 we reviewed back in June, but this drive not only performs better it also gives you an extra 20GB of space! You may not thing that 20GB is that much extra space but think of how many...
